You can find out the version you have via software query.
otherwise take the front faceplate off and see the PCB rev
printed there.

There are roughly 3K V5 in the feild all built early on.. in june/july
I believe, so the datecode can also give you a clue.

There is no rework for a5-a6. the differences are listed in the
wiki and I'm fairly confident that a large portion of the a5 were
reworked, covered this a long time ago.. anyways, both a5/a6 can be 
reworked to improve the buzz issue some people have.
